“ Chadwick was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016 and fought against it for almost 4 years as the disease progressed to stage 4, ” his relatives sadly revealed in a statement. A real shock for his fans given that Chadwick Boseman had never disclosed anything publicly about his illness and had favored a fight against it in private.
An outstanding fighter
In this regard, his family wanted to express their pride in the actor who, despite cancer and heavy treatment, never gave up and always gave everything to pursue his career, ” As a true fighter, Chadwick persevered despite everything in order to offer you so many films that you may have liked. “Also, whether it was Message from the King (2017), Marshall (2017) or even Da 5 Bloods (2020), which were able to show us different facets of his talent, ” all of these films were shot at the same time that he was undergoing countless operations and chemotherapy. ”
Above all, Chadwick Boseman never let himself down in order to be able to realize his dearest dream: to integrate the MCU and bring the first black superhero to the big screen. ” It was the honor of his career to be able to bring King T'Chall to life in Black Panther, ” said his family, a role he played with joy and power in 4 legendary films namely Captain America Civil War (2016), Black Panther (2018), Avengers Infinity War (2018) and Avengers Endgame (2019).
This summer, the entertainment world has just lost one of its greatest superheroes and our sadness is endless.
